First training workshop of the InnoVal project
On Thursday 16 November eucen organised in Barcelona the first pilot training workshop of the InnoVal project. The event was led by Francesca Uras, eucen Projects Officer, and saw the active participation of education professionals from Spain, Belgium, France, Portugal, Turkey and other European countries.

The activity was aimed to present one of the key project outputs – the Training Programme on the application of alternative evaluation methods – and collect feedback and recommendations from participants how to improve it.

The results of the initial needs assessment phase of the project were also shared with the participants, who confirmed the relevance of the key aspects explored by the project partnership, such as the importance of using a mix of standardized and alternative assessment methods for VNIL, the need for capacity building and training of assessors, the need to better match assessments to needs and to invest in the design and quality of alternative assessment.

The next InnoVal training workshops will be organised in the upcoming months in Portugal, Belgium and Greece.
